    I am sure there is an easy way to assign this and that I am just missing it. Currently the blog is set to multiple authors. However, it shows the whole blog post rather than an excerpt and the option to read more. I have the blog set-up via the “And where do you want to display the Blog?” in the Enfold Theme Options.

    Can you please direct me to where or how I can change these settings.

    You can use the more quicktag http://codex.wordpress.org/Customizing_the_Read_More , http://en.support.wordpress.com/splitting-content/more-tag/ to split your content into an excerpt and full version. If you don’t want to add a quicktag replace following code in includes/loop-index.php

    $blog_content = !empty($avia_config['blog_content']) ? $avia_config['blog_content'] : "content";

    with

    $blog_content = !empty($avia_config['blog_content']) ? $avia_config['blog_content'] : "excerpt_read_more";
    if(is_single()) $blog_content = "content";

    - afterwards Enfold will generate an excerpt automatically or it will use the text from the “excerpt” option field.

    Hi Dude,

    How do i get it done to show the excerpt on “archives” ?

    For my “Frontpage” i have created a page where is use the the “blog posts” feature of the avia builder with option to show the excerpt only.

    THAT WORKS FINE ;)

    But on the archive of each category it shows the full blogpost. I would love to show the excerpt on the archive instead of the full content.

    The thing is … i have more then 100 Categories with a lots of posts and i am not able to edit all the posts to get the <more> thing included.

    I am also not able to create a page for each of my categories to use the “blog posts” feature of the builder.

    If i use the code you have posted above i dont see any content if i browse to a single post.

    Shorty

    Hi Dude,

    I had the same problem as shorty with this one. Once I clicked the read more I was redirected to the blog post…but it still only showed me the excerpt. Do you have any other suggestions? I have hundreds of posts i would rather not have to go back to each of them individually.

    Hi,

    Are you using Layout builder for posts?

    What do you have defined on top of Settings > Reading .. it should look like this http://www.clipular.com/c?7958741=FGXIlfgdnQ9LVpNjooXHyOvjIas&f=.png

    How about settings on this page, http://www.clipular.com/c?7959783=hSlBywMb7V1_7zmmtkPMyC2VfOw&f=.png

    Thanks,

    Nick

    Hi Nick,

    I have tested both options. Using the layout builder and the option to define where i wanna see the blog in the theme options.

    The thing is … Dudes code is working fine THE ONLY PROBLEM is that if you click on the title to view the full blog post it shows you the excerpt only.

    What i try to get done is … I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE THE ARCHIVES WORKING THE WAY THAT I SEE THE EXCERPT ONLY NOT THE FULL POSTS.

    Best regards,
